Pasta e Fagioli
Brown the sausage. Saute the onion, garlic and pancetta in EVOO until tender. Toss everything into a large 6 qt crockpot. Stir well and cover. Cook on low for 8 hours. During last hour, add the pasta.
Mayberry didn't have pancetta, so I used black-pepper bacon (which was good). I did find the ditalini pasta, and think I will use a bit more next time I make this. It totally filled my 6 qt. crockpot, so I have plenty to freeze.
Love me some one-pot meals. Pass the crusty French bread, please!
